    Vetassess practical venue

    Does anybody know where the Glasgow venue is for the Vetassess Refrigeration practical? Oh and what the practical entails. My poor husband is more nervous for the practical than for anything else - I've tried to tell him to treat it as a normal day at work but..................
  15. Hi, I am a formwork joiner and have just had a job offer from a company in Queensland who are willing to sponser me on a ENS121 visa. Do i still need to have a practical test as part of the skills assesment or by having the sponsership does this mean it is only paper based? Can anyone help clear this up as its very confusing. Many thanks Ross
  16. Hi all, Well he made it home. Tired and hungry. They did not get offered the option of a break, so worked through. He says the men testing them were really friendly and helpful, so just have to wait and see now, so fingers crossed. I would like to say a big thankyou to everyone who gave him the good wishes and were thinking of him today, he is just glad it is all over. He took a big hammer to his practice roof in the garden and he said it felt good. Good luck to everyone who is still waiting to do the test, and all those who are waiting for results. Take care.

    Plumbing Vetassess Practical

    Hi everyone We`re new to this forum and was wondering if anyone can help me. I`m due to take my plumbing practical at Accrington next month and am taking the roofing option. Was just hoping if anyone has taken this option could they give me some information about it. I know it requires you to fab box guttering but was wondering if it`s lead,copper tin etc. I can`t find any info about it and if anyone can give me some help then I would be very grateful. Should I email Vetassess and ask them or is that a bad idea? The firm where I work employs roofers so they tend to do all the leadwork and I haven`t really done much leadwork since serving my time (22 years ago). Everyone keeps telling me I`m worrying too much and maybe that`s so but I don`t want to risk failing due to cost and delaying the visa application. Thanking you all in advance Ozzie and Lea
  20. hi all, Is there any other sparks out there that have been given thurs 19th february for their practical test in london? cheers dick
